To Josie's family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of such a special lady. I knew her many years before I came to work at GE. I always saved a front row seat for her daughter, Rhonda, on the school bus. Josie never forgot that. She was a kind, caring, friendly and loving friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Carolyn deBernard
